If they ever provide a firmware update for this I hope they have it as a user defined option to turn full justification on and off. When you're older and use a larger font (to avoid reading glasses) full justification just looks stupid.
The firmware update people want is for the epub renderer on the 505 to obey the "text-align: justify" style that can be specified with epubs. Therefore the type of justication (left, full etc) will be determined by the epub file itself. At the moment the renderer ignores the "justify" style.

If you then get an epub with the "justify" style and you want it to be left justified, it is a relatively simple matter to edit the epub to change it, assuming the epub does not have DRM (or the DRM has been stripped). I can see how having to edit the epub may cause problems for some people; it would be possible for have a attribute in the firmware to essentially revert to the existing behaviour and to ignore the justify style. There is currently such an attribute for LRFs--you can turn full justification of LRFs off, but this does require flashing the firmware (see PRSCustomizer).
